you need to fill the tire with something, to hold the rim off the trainer roller .
Occupied NL WW 1?2?, they are said to have filled their bike tires with straw from the fields ..
there are 'captive air' tires , essentially a foam molded tire to pry on the rim, it has some bead cords molded in,
to keep it on.. being on a trainer the chance of rolling it off the rim is nil.
I have 1 a 27" one, a bout like a 1.25" width , if you want it, PM and we can talk terms.
LeMond has a trainer that has a cassette on it,[ it, at some cost,] replaces the wheel itself.
the resistance is fan blades , so not quiet, I assume..
